These healthy banana pancakes are another favourite receipe from our wonderful dietitician here at Holistic Physio Fitness – Amanda McCredie. She finds these healthy snacks perfect for those who don’t particularly like eating breakfast, or for simply something different. Her children love them too!
Here is why these pancakes are healthy:
- They contain oats instead of white flour meaning they are rich in soluble fibre, which keeps your bowels regular & reduces cholesterol reabsorption in the large intestine.
- High in protein from the eggs, milk and yoghurt to keep you full and aids in muscle repair/regeneration
- They don’t contain any refined sugar or flour like regular pancake mixes that can spike your blood sugar levels.
